30 Days of Reagan - Day 20

And we are especially not going to tolerate these attacks from outlaw states run by the strangest collection of misfits, Looney Tunes and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich […] There can be no place on earth where it is safe for these monsters to rest,or train or practice their cruel and deadly. We must act together – or unilaterally, if necessary – to ensure that these terrorists have no sanctuary, anywhere."

My Take - President Reagan said these words in reference to rogue states such as Libya and North Korea, but his words 16 years before September 11 were prophetic, but ignored by succeeding administrations.  Those who want to bring the craziness of the rest of the world to our shores need to know that our reaction will be fast, violent and brutal.  We also need to be proactive to find and eliminate threats before they reach our shore.  That's why I support a reduction of our foreign involvement, but not a complete dismantlement of our world-wide defense strategy.

Yep, we lost a lot of good sources when Mr. Clinton decided that gentlemen didn't work with ruffians.
